by Anna Kovach Astrologer, relationship astrologer
There are some valid reasons why do Pisces men go silent. A Pisces man silent treatment makes you pause. Here's what to do when a Pisces man goes silent.

The Pisces man silent treatment can be particularly painful. How can someone turn around so quickly from being the most loving person you have ever experienced to ignoring you flat-out like you are a stranger?

A Pisces gone silent isn’t always a cause for concern because these men quite often need their me-time to recoup and center themselves once again. A Pisces man is a very sensitive soul who often needs to disappear to feel like himself.

The Pisces man silent treatment is something you are going to have to get used to if you want to be with this man. Don’t worry, it isn’t always something personal, sometimes it is just what this man needs at the moment. 

Are you currently dealing with a Pisces man gone silent? Then this is most certainly the article for you. Keep on reading to find out more about why Pisces men go silent and what you can do about it!

When A Pisces Man Gives You Silent Treatment — Why Do Pisces Go Silent?

He Needs Time To Trust You

One of the biggest reasons a Pisces man would ignore you or pull back, which makes him seem as though he’s blowing you off, is when he isn’t really ready to talk to you about his personal life. This would mean that he has things going on in his world that he isn’t going to talk about quite yet. If he’s not fully comfortable with you, he’s going to be a Pisces man gone silent.

This doesn’t always mean your Pisces man is upset with you, either. He could be totally disturbed by other things going on in his life, and he doesn’t know how to cope with them, so he just shuts down. Pisces silent treatment becomes common.

A Pisces man silent treatment will accompany a shutdown from everyone. He will go home, stay there or in his room, and lock himself up for a day or two so that he can gather his thoughts or feelings about what is going on.

He Needs A Moment To Decompress

Sometimes he’s overloaded with feelings from other people as well as Pisces men are very sensitive and pick up on everything. Remember that he’s an empathetic guy and often picks up on other people’s emotions or energies which blend with his and make things very confusing.

He needs to back away from everyone so that he can connect with himself and distinguish between his own feelings and the feelings of others that he has somehow picked up along the way.

When the Pisces man is totally comfortable with you and feels he can trust you, he may be more able to tell you when things are “off” in his life and when he just needs a little downtime to recover.

Try not to take this personally, he is just trying to find a way to get back to himself so that life doesn’t feel so hectic and overwhelming anymore. 

He Feels Angry Or Hurt By You

Clearly, if you hurt the Pisces man’s feelings or do something that really pisses him off then yes, he will withdraw and possibly give you the silent treatment. It’s not right and it’s not mature but he’s a feeler. He operates on his knee-jerk reactions.

A Pisces man has to learn how to open up and communicate properly instead of shutting himself down. He doesn’t realize that problems will not get solved if he doesn’t actually express what he’s upset about. When a Pisces man goes quiet, it’s an issue.

How can you fix anything if you don’t know what it is that you did wrong or what you did that hurt him? When you notice Pisces man silent treatment you can help by perhaps letting him know that you’re actually concerned, he’ll remember that he really should actually tell you what he’s feeling. This will alleviate confusion and possibly make him come back around quicker.

Here’s more on how to apologize to a Pisces man when you hurt him <<

He Doesn’t Understand What He Is Feeling

If he’s a young Pisces man, he’s going to have even more difficulty understanding how to open up and communicate. He hasn’t developed the skills to talk things through yet and responds only to his feelings.

The more mature he becomes, the more he begins to realize through experience that it’s often better to speak up instead of holding it in. The older Pisces man may actually say too much at times.

Certainly, if you said something that really ticked him off or said something that got to him on a deep emotional level, he will possibly not know how to respond and instead Pisces man goes quiet.

Again, reach out to him and let him know that you are sorry that you hurt him or ticked him off. Ask what it was in specific and try to understand the Pisces man gone silent.

So when you ask yourself “Pisces man ignoring me is happening, what do I do?”. Remember that the Pisces man silent treatment is something he’s very used to doing. 

He Feels Smothered

The Pisces man loves lots of attention and affection but he has limits. Has your Pisces man gone silent?  There are some reasons you probably need to be aware of so that you can avoid it.

He can become too intertwined with his partner which causes him to be off kilter and can lead to depression. In fact, Pisces men are prone to mental illness and addiction. When Pisces man goes quiet, it means they should really learn coping skills when it comes to letting their emotions out.

If you really watch for the signs, you can just about tell when your Pisces guy is near a breaking point. When a Pisces goes silent, something is definitely up with him.

He will also start reacting if you’re spending too much time together. Even if he loves you, at some point his emotions become overwhelmed and he will want some time by himself.

Your Connection Is Overwhelming Him

It’s alright to let him have some free time and space because sometimes the love he feels can overwhelm him and make him forget who he is. He won’t leave. In fact, he’ll really appreciate it if you let him have time on his own. It’s ideal for you to make your own plans away from him once in a while.

I’m not saying this has to happen often but I’d say at least once a week would be something that allows him to be himself, be by himself, and figure it out when a Pisces goes silent.

If you don’t allow him to have this time and space, he will start to resent you and that upset will build until he takes the time he wants without your say so. He will just go dead quiet and you’ll have a hard time getting him to respond.

The best thing is to always be up front with him about your feelings and ask him about his. He may be afraid to tell you that he needs space or that he has some issues going on in his life.

When you open up to him and ask him to do the same, he may actually get comfortable then this disappearing thing may happen substantially less if at all. Give it a chance and be an open book with him.

What To Do When A Pisces Man Goes Silent

When a Pisces man goes silent, it may have you feeling really confused and probably put you into action mode. You may want to fix things ASAP, but I suggest that you don’t. The best thing you can do is to respect his wishes and give him the space he needs. 

The last thing you want to do is smother him or make him feel overwhelmed by your actions. This will make him believe that you aren’t very empathetic and don’t understand how he feels. The last thing a Pisces man needs is pressure from you when he goes silent. 

Most of the time it probably isn’t even your fault. He just wants to be by himself and that is absolutely no reflection on you. Even if it may feel like it is. Try your best to be mature and responsible and understand not everything is about you. 

Of course, the same can’t be said if you actually did something to hurt or upset him. If you have done so indeed, then all you can really do is give him a sincere apology and let him know how terrible you feel to have hurt him.

Giving A Pisces Man Silent Treatment — Does No Contact Work On Pisces?

Ignoring a Pisces man is a little complicated and might not have very positive effects. The thing with Pisces men is that they can be very manipulative, but they are also very sensitive. 

If a Pisces man feels that you are giving him the silent treatment to get back at him then he will probably not respond in the way that he wants him too. Although he has the ability to be a master manipulator, he especially hates it when it is done to him. 

However, if your Pisces man is not the manipulating kind he actually might feel really hurt by you giving him silent treatment. As I have mentioned before, he is very sensitive and emotional, so it may backfire if you ignore him. 

I would think things through carefully if you want to give him the silent treatment. In my opinion, he is the sign that reacts the worst to no contact. 

Some Pisces men might not even notice that you are giving them the silent treatment, so in that case, it doesn’t even work either. He’ll probably just assume that you need some time for yourself and that you will make contact with him when you are ready.

How To Make A Pisces Man Regret Ignoring You

Pisces men very much operate in their own world. They feel things very deeply yes and can sense what is going on around them. But, you always have to remember that often Pisces men are living a sort of fantasy life. 

Their existence isn’t always based in reality, so even if you ignore a Pisces man he might not even notice because he is so consumed with his own life. It is very possible that he might not even notice that you are gone. 

So getting him to regret ignoring you is near impossible, this is why I wouldn’t advocate you doing this with him. The best course of action to deal with a Pisces man is always to be honest and vulnerable with them. Let him know how you feel, he will appreciate it.

Playing games and trying to manipulate them will never work because they are the masters of this and can easily spot it when someone is trying to do this to them. 

FAQ About Pisces Man Silent Treatment

How To Know A Pisces Man Is Done With You?

If a Pisces man is done with you, you will definitely know because he is likely to disappear, never to be heard from again. Pisces men are slippery fish. It can be quite jarring. But you will notice him acting very cold toward you if he responds to you even at all. 

Will A Pisces Man Come Back To You After No Contact?

There is a chance that a Pisces man will come back to you after no contact, but not for the reasons you think. He may not even have noticed you disappearing for a significant amount of time. 

Your image may just pop into his mind one day and he will decide to contact you out of the blue like it is the most normal thing in the world and carry on as usual. These men are very confusing as you can see and you need a lot of patience if you want to be with one of them.

How Do Pisces Men React To Being Ignored?

Well, as I have mentioned quite a few times already, chances are good that your Pisces man might not even notice you have ignored him at all in the first place. So the way he will react is probably by doing nothing. 

If he tries to contact you a few times and hears nothing back from you for a while he is likely to just assume that you are busy or that you have moved on. It may not take him very long to get over this either. 

If the two of you have a strong connection yes it may hurt, but he is really good at respecting boundaries and knowing when to stop trying to force something. 

How To Make A Pisces Man Realize He Is Losing You?

If you want your Pisces man to realize that he is losing you, you can’t actually be subtle with him. It is actually much better to just be direct with him and tell him that you have had enough and no longer want him in your life. 

If you try to just back away slowly he may not even notice and he will think that he still has access to you. This is why telling him directly how you feel has a better impact on him. He needs to be told that he has messed up, this is the only way. 

No More Sleepless Nights About Your Pisces Man…

It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Pisces man who won’t commit.

I know. I’ve been there with many of my friends dating Pisces guys. I remember my very close friend crying herself to sleep at night, worried that her man would never commit to her.

She lost sleep, time, and even work hours, all because she couldn’t figure out how to capture his heart and get him to commit.

As a friend, it was hard to watch her go through that.

But I knew how good he was for her, and I didn’t want her to give up on him. Even when our other friends were telling her to move on, I could see that he was the most incredible man she had ever met.

How could she just give up on that?

But it wasn’t easy. 

It took a LOT of work. She had to learn how to speak a different language… his love language <<

And it worked!! 

So if you are ready to sleep like a baby… Knowing your Pisces man is MADLY in love with you… And never feel anxious about him again…

Go here now to see how to speak your Pisces man’s love language <<

  1. I met my Picses man about 6 months ago. We dated on and off for the first few weeks. He has communication issues so I broke it off a couple of times. We were only apart maybe a week or so in between times. We just could stay away from each other. We had a really strong connection. When we got back together the last time we decided to committed ourselves to each other. He told me he loved me and had loved me for a while and thought we were meant to be together. We were really happy. He was staying with me at my home and everything was going great until a family issue tore him away. His life was turned upside down and now he’s having to raise 2 of his grand children. We talked about us and he said that he loved me and would miss me but he had no idea if he was even going to have time for a social life. The situation is very complicated . He was barely talking to me. We were apart for almost 2 months and he finally had a free weekend. He called me and came and spent the weekend with me. We had a great time together. He told me how much he missed me and that he loved me multiple times. He was so loving and sweet. But before the next week was over he has stopped talking to me again. He is the most confusing, selfish and cruel man I have ever met. I think he is a liar and a cheater. He has hurt me more than any man has. I’m so heartbroken I don’t think I’ll ever trust what another man says to me again.. it has been 10 days since he last texted me. He just walked away with no explanation. Ghosted me like I never meant anything to him. I treated him like a king. I’m a Cancer woman so he never had to wonder how I felt about him. I was very loving and affectionate and always told him how I felt. Why would he treat me this way?

    1. I’ve dealt with one as well, only short turn. I believe they’re mentally unstable and quite unusual men. He brought an older woman to church with him as they sat together a few times with his arm around her. Our friend says, “Oh Timothy, I see you’ve found yourself a wife.” His reply was, she’s my mother’s age; old enough to be my mother!”

      1. Hi Sadie!

        Ouch that’s not a very nice thing for him to say about that woman he has his arm around. He must have already made it clear to her that he’s not interested in being more than friends with benefits perhaps? It’s possible. Pisces men like to play until they find “the one”.

    2. Hi Michelle!

      He could be a cheater and a liar or he could be telling the truth. If he is telling the truth it’s because Pisces men are not very well equipped with dealing with hard situations especially when it has to do with family. He is not a multi-faceted person who can deal with love, work, family, etc all at once. He’s not balanced and this is why Pisces men turn to substance or addiction sometimes. I’m sorry you feel heartbroken but you should ask him for the truth flat out and see what he says. That way you can get closure if needed.

  2. Well I’m sorry that happened because I was talking to this pieces man for about 1 year but 5 or 6 months into our friend ship there were things I still didn’t know about him he would come over line once twice a week he would invite me out for dinner like before he would go into work. Finally like the next 6 months I was invited over to his place it took him that long to invite me over his ever we had fire chemistry from the first time he laid his eyes on me he told me he was chemistry at first site so we still talk to this day but I haven’t seen or heard from him he won’t answer my txt messages or oh hbd calls when I’ve always been the one to give his space so with all the txt messages that I sent him every day I’m hoping I haven’t made matters worse because I know he will shut down but it’s been tough not hearing from him today is Valentine’s Day and I haven’t heard from him it’s been really tough but I go on

    1. Hi Shi!

      I’m sorry to hear you tangled with the wrong Pisces man. If a Pisces man doesn’t move mountains to spend time with you then he’s not into you no matter what he says. His actions will often speak much louder than his words. The right Pisces guy will embrace you and do anything he can for you. He sure as heck wouldn’t treat you the way that one did.

  3. My Pisces boyfriend and I are not talking now, which isn’t anything new. This last time we got into an argument, sort of, he left off by saying that I’ll go into silence, like I’ll be the one who goes into silent mode. But I was directly telling him that I don’t have a problem and I don’t feel the need to do that, but he kept saying I’ll go into being quiet. I kept asking him why would he say that, but of course he said nothing more and stopped talking to me. He has this terrible habit of critiquing me, judging, telling me what he doesn’t like about me, what I need to change, and so on. But as soon as I tell him the same back of what I dislike about him, he shuts down, turn the entire conversation around, and make it seem like something is my fault, basically he likes to say it but can’t take it when it’s done to him. What I think our argument was about this time is the fact that now he has 2 jobs and is getting back on his feet and where he wants to be, so now he feels as if everybody else from before when he was down will bring him back down. That he has to purge all the people who aren’t thinking and doing to his standards aren’t good enough, including me. My current situation is that I am looking for my first job in the health care field, he’s into technology and think I should be looking into that instead. But I told him I don’t mind working my way up, even though my job at first will be very little, but it’s still in the healthcare field and that’s what matters to me. He said that I’m being simple minded and not thinking bigger or outside of the box. But I’m sure the problem is because I’m not thinking like him and agreeing with him. And besides the argument, I’ve told him that I have experienced being ghosted, neglected, and ignored in other relationships before, and he’s using this against me because he knows it bothers me. It’s like his way of mentally punishing me to tear me down. But I’m older and more mature, and to be honest he’s the most emotional man I have ever dated, so this stuff is kind of annoying to me now. I think now I’m not the point where I am tired of the critiques, his emotions, and him thinking he knows everything. I do love him, but I’m done with shutting up and just taking this stuff now, and getting told what’s not good enough about me. He thinks that I’m the problem and not seeing things clearly, but he needs to understand that the things he say to me and the way he acts is annoying. And it’s more annoying that he can’t take it and can’t take blame for his own ways.

    1. Hi Kris!

      Ok so you’re pinching his little heart with your crab claws. I get it. No, Pisces men are not good with what they feel is criticism in any form. The way to get to him best is by sort of learning how to better communicate with him. Instead of saying “you piss me off because you did this”, you can say “alright so remember when this happened? It really bothered me because I felt….”. Can you see the difference. One is accusatory and the other is just you sharing your feelings. Give it a shot!

  4. I’m am a Capricorn woman an I am dating a Pisces man when we got together it was kind of a fast relationship like he like me off the back an he dating me right away we didn’t get a chance to talk that much we did talk overnight and he did want to go out with me so we did 5 days later he just stopped talking to me as much as he did and it’s been kind of worrying me cuz I’m the type of girl that would want to talk to you a lot to spend time with you a lot and it’s kind of hard for me to cope with that I don’t know what’s wrong with him I feel like he doesn’t love me but he says he does an he tells me wouldnt leave me he makes these excuses that hes just busy but I think other wise, I’ve just having some weird feeling in me like I would text him and he wouldn’t reply back sometimes and it really made me feel weird inside I don’t know what it is an that’s why I’m on this website hopefully someone can help me out my friend just told me to leave them I don’t really want to leave him deep down I really love him I don’t know what to do somethings telling to hold him but idk how much more i could bare before I lose it I just really want someone to help me pplz

    1. Hi g0thicc!

      That weirdness you feel is your gut telling you that this guy isn’t the right one for you. If he truly cared for you and wanted to be with you, he would do exactly that. Pisces men start to flake out when they aren’t really into it or they find something about you they don’t feel works for their life. He decides you’re not the one or maybe not the one so he backs off to go about his business. If you would like more information about Pisces man, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  5. I dated my Pisces ex for 6 months. We met online and had mutual feelings and started dating right off the back. One month after we met, he invited me to meet his parents. I didn’t feel like going because it felt too fast. He had asked me several times and I decided to take a leap of faith and went with it. We both work long hours and sometimes we wouldn’t spend too much time together during the week. He used to FaceTime me everyday after work. I wouldn’t say we had super strong connection but we both really comfortable having each other as company. I’m a Sagittarius women who is super easy to please and I don’t always demand much. He plans dinners and our meet up around his schedules and I always try to accomandate without complaining. One day he went on business trip and had busy work week, I hadn’t seen him for two weeks. He called off our plan to meet and said I wasn’t planning on to see you after he got back. I got really upset because I had missed him and work was so stressful I just wanted a hug from him. I went to see him and started sobbing because he didn’t feel like seeing me after two weeks. He just sat there staring at me like i’m crazy. He said he doesn’t know where my emotions are coming from and I’m making him uncomfortable because I was crying. I got upset and left his house. A week later, I texted him, no response. Two weeks later, not another word. I even begged him to talk to me, nothing. So I broke it off with him over text. What else am I suppose to do? I couldn’t figure out what I had done to him to give me the silent treatment. I went to him house wanted an answer. For 20 mins I sat there, he said I’m sorry. One week before our arguement, he told me he appreciated me the most, a week later i’ve never heard another word from
    Him. I’m heartbroken for being treated like this. And I don’t even know why.

    1. HI Anna!

      I don’t think he was giving you the silent treatment on purpose but I’m also not saying he was right to do what he did either. However, when you get really upset with him you need to speak to him in a way that won’t make him feel like a horrible turd. Saying something like “I believed that you would come see me and because it didn’t happen, I felt really sad and hurt”. That sounds less accusatory. It lets him understand why you did what you did without pointing fingers. If you would like more information about Pisces man, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  6. Hi Anna,
    I was dealing with a younger Pisces man than me at the beginning of this year. It was romantic and everything I wanted. The issue is we were only dealing with each other for a month and I irrationally blocked him because I was upset by something that I felt he did. When I unblocked him the next day I texted him and he told me to keep him blocked. We didn’t talk for an entire month. A week before his birthday (March 18) I reached out to him and his texting behavior was quite detached. Not at all the sweet loving man I was with the month prior. So again we didn’t talk until his birthday the next week, at that point we talked because I called him and we talked about what happened. He sent me a really long text later that day telling me I ruined his birthday morning and that he couldn’t believe I blocked him because of my own assumptions. It’s now been another two weeks since we’ve spoken and I still want to give our relationship a chance. Do you think there’s still a possibility?

    *I’m a Sagittarius and the more he’s giving me the silent treatment the more I go with it because I don’t want to be rejected.

    1. Hi Adriann Ward!

      Yes but you will have to give him some time to work past the hurt he feels. He will come out of it and he will get to a “talking” level again. Try texting every couple of days telling him hi and asking him how he is doing but leave it at that. Don’t ask him if he’s ready to talk or anything like that. I understand you not wanting to be rejected but there also needs to be some kind of contact from him to assure you that he will still be there for you after this. Try what I mentioned and see how it fares for you. Also you can read my books on Pisces Man Secrets for even more in depth information. I wish you the best!

  7. Hi,

    My name is Ammu. I’m a female pisces and I met a male pisces in march. After couple of weeks, we met once in a pub. Not sure if that’s my last meeting with him. Before meeting him in person, he used to chat with me regularly and when I text him randomly, he used to reply saying he just opened my chat to text me and at the same time I did. He used to question me alot out of curiosity to know more about me. He have told alot about his family.
    But the mistake I did was, I always used to talk very less about myself with him. I haven’t shared anything about my family. Since the time I saw him and when I met him in person too, I got a vibe from him as we knew each other for longtime. When I saw him for the first time itself, I felt as I have seen him somewhere before and even he said the same. Things were going really well, until we met!!
    Even on the day we met, he shared alot about his business and all. I don’t know why, I always played a listener role and never been an open book. And he asked me whether I’m basically very quiet person but that isn’t the real me and I told him I’m a talkative person but it’s taking sometime for me now. One day he asked me whether I’m comfortable with casual relationship as he’s not looking for serious relationship now due to his startup business progress work and I told him I’ll answer it in person. But I am not interested in casual relationship and now I like him alot which he doesn’t know. My thoughts and feelings about him are completely mysterious now. Then we partied and I was little uncomfortable in party. He kept asking me to dance and pulled me towards him to dance but I didn’t. Then I got drunk and he took good care of me, as I was feeling sick and puked by overdrinking. Then slowly he became romantic and both of us got physical. This wasn’t on our plan but things happened the other way.

    But my sadness started from the next day we met. He suddenly reduced talking to me. Barely replied and now no calls or texts. But he sees my posts on Instagram without fail. Being a female pisces, certain traits of his were seemed similar to mine but still confused to understand his silence now. Feels so he doesn’t like me now. Before meeting him and when I met also, he quite often told me that he wanna catch up with me again. But I don’t know what happened with him now !!!
    No response from his side and I’m also being quiet from my end.

    Is this his way of mind game/silent treatment/ disinterest towards me ??

    1. Hi Ammu!

      I am so sorry you’re going through this. He did tell you he didn’t want a relationship but wanted casual. You said you didn’t want casual. By getting intimate I think you were hoping that would change but he reiterated the fact that he didn’t want more by becoming detached from you. His actions are showing you he doesn’t want to get closer. I think he does like you but he doesn’t want you feeling things for him that he isn’t ready to feel. I hope this makes sense.

  8. Trust me, they are all selfish, self absorbed flakes. I’ve known too many of them and all the Pisces men act the same whether they are 17 or 70. This latest one is 70 and still playing those narcissistic games and when you call him on them, he goes into denial and victim mode. Playas until the very end.
